I agree with your observation about reviews of (almost) every new cd coming out being "their best ever", no matter who the band is. When reading a review, I try to read between the lines. Most times, I can tell if the review comes from a biased, sycophant, psycho fan- or if it comes from somebody equally biased to the negative. I tend not to believe reviews from people who say stuff like..."every song is the BEST!!!!" or"those guys are gorgeous!" or, "these dinosaurs lumber on..." . I look for reviews that tell it like it is, "tracks 1 and 2 ROCK, but the cd falls off terribly from there", and then go on to explain their opinion.

When I post a review, I go out of the way to let people know that my review is not biased. When I reviewed Journey ARRIVAL, I referenced my blistering review of their Greatest Hits Live cd just so people would know that Im not some Journey butt-licker. Sorry if I rambled! Peace,

Brian Mc
